New Artist Interview with Etsuko Ichikawa on YouTube

The latest artist interview is now available for viewing on the Art Museum's YouTube page. Etsuko Ichikawa was interviewed in February while she on on-site installing her work. NACHI - between the eternal and the ephemeral - is a site-specific installation, created specifically for the UW Art Museum. In her interview, Ichikawa talks about her inspiration for working with a range of materials that includes thread, video, audio, and pyrographs, which are drawing made from molten glass on paper. She also discusses the role of movement in her work and the process of creating, transporting, and unpacking the work.

The series of video interviews with contemporary artists is an ongoing collaboration with UWTV and enables us to capture the voice, words, and ideas of our visiting artists and share that information publicly. We hope that hearing directly from the artist is inspiring, engaging, and encourages you to visit or re-visit their work with a new perspective.

Etsuko Ichikawa: NACHI - between the eternal and the ephemeral - is on view through August 6, 2011. The Art Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm, with extended Monday hours until 9 pm through the first Monday of May. Admission is free. For more information on this or any other exhibition, please call 307.766.6622.
